# Irreducible representations of the EM-tensor under spatial rotations

Can we consider the E and B fields as being irreducible representations under the rotations group SO(3) even though they are part of the same (0,2) tensor? Of course under boosts they transform into each other are not irreducible under this action. I would like to know if there is in some way one could decompose the electromagnetic tensor F into the E and B under spatial rotations?
